    Our first hatcher from our homemade styrofoam incubator.
    4 out of 10 survived. Research indicates we may have had a better survival rate if we treated the eggs better PRIOR to incubation.

    The chicks were a little wobbly at first! So cute! See her little leg on the glass? We used a fish tank as a brooder for the first week and a half then they out grew it. They grow SOOOO fast!
